News, but not the serious kind

Hiya, I’m the new Goofmeister!

July 18, 2009

Blog Guy, I love your Goofy Face Museum and Doughnut Shop, and visit it whenever I’m in DC. But I heard on the radio that there is a new chairman. Are you being eased out?

No, nothing like that. The museum board isn’t about to dump me after we just had our most successful week ever, with nearly 40 tourists gaping at the pictures with their sticky jelly doughnut-stained faces.

What you refer to is we just appointed a new honorary chairman, just to meet and greet and show VIPs around and stuff.

Ah! The radio didn’t say what his qualifications are.

It’s the kind of thing that doesn’t travel well to the radio. But trust me, he’s got qualifications out the wazoo.

Yeah ok. Reuters kinda blew the caption. Yeah, he’s competing from a 1 meter board. What id doesn’t say is that the photo here catches him at just the moment he’s moving toward the board and steps on a poorly insulated 220v power feed.

@gwmc, it’s either that or some prankster filled up the pool with scalding hot water…
